The 11th Hour is a 1995 interactive movie puzzle adventure game with a horror setting. It is the sequel to the 1993 game The 7th Guest. It was developed by Trilobyte and used a later version of the “Groovie” graphic engine than that used by The 7th Guest. The 11th Hour also features the music of George “The Fat Man” Sanger and Team Fat.

Overall, the gameplay is similar to its predecessor’s with the same puzzle-based game play structure, but with the additional element of a treasure hunt and more graphic scenes.

The game takes place 60 years after the events of the first game. It is now 1995 and the player, as Carl Denning, is an investigative reporter for the television series “Case Unsolved.” Robin Morales, his producer and lover, has mysteriously vanished while gathering background information surrounding a series of grisly murders and disappearances in the otherwise quiet little town of Harley-on-the-Hudson. Denning’s only solid lead is a portable computer called the Game Book delivered by persons unknown to him postmarked Harley, NY.

The game starts when Carl steps into the mansion, with short videos of Robin’s investigation and the mystery behind her disappearance viewed from the gamebook throughout the game. Most of the videos are short and vague by themselves. However, once the hour has struck, all the videos accumulated in that hour are strung together to form a ten-minute movie that clears most of the confusion. The plot divides into two unequal parts; Carl’s journey around the Stauf Mansion and the events that preceded it.
The game opens with the game’s protagonist, Carl Denning, watching the evening news. The newscaster reports that police have called off the investigation of Denning’s “Case Unsolved” producer Robin Morales, who was last seen investigating the Stauf Mansion several weeks ago. The reporter suggests that Morales’ disappearance may be linked to several recent murders and several other disappearances in the Harley area, as well as reporting on a rumoured relationship between Denning and Morales. Worried, but somewhat annoyed, Carl clicks off the television just as the doorbell rings. He receives a mysterious package, inside of which is the Gamebook. Carl sees Robin frantically begging for his help on the Gamebook screen, as well as a mysterious looking mansion. Carl then gets on his motorcycle, apparently heading towards Harley-on-Hudson where the mansion is located. While Carl drives various flashbacks are shown depicting the blossoming relationship of Denning and Morales, which sours when Morales becomes convinced that her reputation as a producer is being threatened by her closeness to Denning.
Carl arrives and gains entry to the Stauf Mansion with the help of the Gamebook. It is at this point that the two plots split up.
